Warrandyte River Reserve
The 8.9-hectare Warrandyte River Reserve offers a beautiful 2.2km walk through scenic Warrandyte bushland, along the southern bank of the Yarra River. The reserve extends from Andersons Creek to the Stonehouse Cafe and incorporates Stiggants Reserve, Lions Park, the Warrandyte Museum and Federation Play space. The southern boundary of the reserve adjoins the Warrandyte Township, which includes the heritage tourism precinct.
Mount Lofty Bushland Reserve, Warrandyte State Park
Mount Lofty features some of the best panoramic views that Melbourne’s inner northeast has to offer. Photo opportunities include the footbridge (over the creek) at the north end of the car park, several picnic spots along the banks of the Yarra River (just off the track), as well as the summit where large groups of kangaroos can be seen grazing on the hillside.
Accessibility: Car access will take you to the end of Reserve Road, Wonga Park. Reserve Road is reached via Homestead Road and Jumping Creek Road (east of Warrandyte).
Pound Bend Reserve
Pound Bend Reserve is a much-loved Melbourne icon with grassy areas for picnicking and a walking track along the river which supplies access to koalas and a variety of flora.
Accessibility: Pound Road is a signposted surfaced road, which heads north off Warrandyte Road (which, in turn, heads west from Warrandyte to Templestowe). The entry gates to this site are closed of an evening (times are posted on the park entrance signs).
Norman Reserve offers excellent views of the Pound Bend Tunnel entrance. There is a picnic area, walking track and canoeing and swimming opportunities.
Accessibility: Head off Yarra Street along the Research-Warrandyte Road and after about 700m there is a turnoff on the left into Bradleys Lane (initially surfaced) which leads to the reserve. The entry gates are closed of an evening.
